The circumstances which favoured the expansion of state welfare in the post-war ‘golden age’ – secure growth, full employment, moderate welfare needs and national politico-economic autonomy – have been reversed in the ‘silver age’ of labour market restructuring, demographic transition and economic globalisation. Most researchers argue that the European welfare settlement is (so far) surprisingly resilient in the face of current challenges
15th August 2007, Journal of Aging Studies
The Journal of Aging Studies features scholarly papers offering new interpretations that challenge existing theory and empirical work. Articles need not deal with the field of aging as a whole, but with any defensibly relevant topic pertinent to the aging experience and related to the broad concerns and subject matter of the social and behavioral sciences and the humanities. The journal emphasizes innovations and critique - new directions in general - regardless of theoretical or methodological orientation or academic discipline.

This is the second of a series of publications on the needs and circumstances of older persons in Northern Ireland. In our first fact sheet we set the scene presenting a wide range of facts and information on the lives of older persons in this part of the United Kingdom (UK). In this publication our focus is on levels and sources of income amongst persons of pensionable age and the prevalence of low incomes and poverty amongst pensioners in Northern Ireland.

This report follows the recent publication by the National Council on Ageing and Older People of An Action Plan for Dementia (1999). That report was requested by the then Minister for Health to consider ways in which services for people with dementia and their carers might be improved. The report also complements a recent unpublished Council study on quality and effectiveness of long-term care provision for older people in Ireland.

In general, the income pattern of older people is radically different from that of younger adults. The absolute income levels of older people are understandably lower than the population in general because, for most people, retirement brings a significant reduction in income, with older people becoming dependent on some form of pension for the bulk of their income. The income status of older Irish people has improved substantially in the last quarter of a century, mainly because of increases in the level of social welfare pensions.
